Amritsar, December 21, 2014 : Urging the Jathedar’s of all Takhts to shun the culture and practice of enjoying state security and privileges, the Dal Khalsa has asked the SGPC to provide them with adequate security guards keeping in view their respect and requirement.

Party spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh expressed these views in the wake of controversy being courted at the withdrawal of security personal from Jathedar Balwant Singh Nanadgarh. He wondered as where was the need for Jathedars’ to have security personal and red beacon atop on their vehicles. He said contrary to popular perception, such government facilities lower their prestige and status and bring them at par with other politicians. He said the Jathedars’ who depend upon state privileges mostly succumb under pressure during testing times. He appealed to Jathedar’s of all Takhts to shun this culture and practice on their own instead of giving chance to Governments to twist their arms when it requires.

Kanwar Pal Singh was speaking at a gathering held to commemorate the 6th foundation day of the Sikh Youth of Punjab. The gathering was called to discuss and deliberate on vital issues pertaining to socio-religio concerns of Punjab and Panth.

The gathering in its first resolution observed that implementing the original Nanakshahi calendar is vital for the unity of the Sikhs. The Nanakshahi Calendar is an identity marker for the Sikh community and the changes have already killed the spirit of the almanac. The amendments made in 2010 had imprint of the RSS and now, the latest efforts to revert it to Bikrami was a part of larger conspiracy hatched by anti-panthic elements to cause severe set-back to the Sikh’s distinct identity.

The youth body urged the Jathedar Akal Takht and others to build consensus on the issue instead of playing partisan role.

The gathering decided to follow the original Nanakshahi calendar and observe the Parkash Utsav of Guru Gobind Singh on Jan 5th.

The meeting expressed profound grief and sorrow over the massacre of 132 kids by Taliban in Peshawar. In its condolence message to victims family members and people of Pakistan,

The new team was elected to carry forward the work and mission of the organization with Paramjit Singh as its new head replacing Nobeljit Singh. A new working committee and office bearers would be nominated shortly.

The newly elected members reiterated their resolve to continue its fight against drug menace, disrespect to women and yellow literature with persuasion, education and arming residents of Punjab with the knowledge.

Amritsar, December 21, 2014: SGPC supported the signature camp held by Federation at “Akal Takhat” Sahib in support of the White House Petition Urging Obama To Raise “Sikh Issue” With Modi. SGPC extended the support to the White House petition after Akal Takhat Jathedar, Giani Gurbachan Singh while issuing “directive” to the Sikh community to sign the Petition stated that “Sikhism is a separate religion” and it should be recognized as such.
The online petition http://wh.gov/i12hT on the issue of separate status of Sikhism is filed under "We The People White House Petition" by US based “Sikhs For Justice” (SFJ). To elicit a response from Obama Administration, the petition on the issue of Article 25(b) of the Indian constitution must reach 100,000 signatures by December 31.
Claiming the Sikhism to be the world's 5th largest religion with over 30 million followers the petition states that "on January 26, 1950 Constitution of India was enforced without the consent of Sikhs who refused to sign it because Explanation II to Article 25(b) of the Constitution labels “Sikhs” as “Hindus”.
Karnail Singh Peermohammad, Federation President stated that “While RSS-BJP combine after coming into power has reignited a campaign to label Sikhs as part of Hindu Society we have taken a resolve at Akal Takhat Sahib to take the matter of Article 25 (b) at the grass root level to the Sikhs in Punjab”.
In August 2005 a Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice RC Lahoti ruled that "Sikhs and Jains are part of broader Hindu religion".
Federation President stated that this is the first time a US President will be the guest of honor on January 26th and Obama must know that Indian constitution does not recognize Sikh religion. We want President Obama to take a stand for the Sikh community which has been denied religious identity by the Indian constitution for the past 65 years.
The petition urges Obama to question PM Modi "WHY Indian constitution labels "Sikhs" as Hindus?" and raise the issues of “Sikh Genocide”; and “Sikhs’ Right to Self-determination”. Barack Obama will be the 1st American President to attend India's Republic Day function as Chief Guest on January 26, 2015.
Federation President stated that “Signature camps in support of the petition will also be held at Fatehgarh sahib on December 26, 27 and 28 and will continue campaign in Punjab to get the required 100,000 signatures”.

Seeks special package from centre for welfare of SC populace in State



Maanawalan (Amritsar), December 21, 2014 : In recognition to the supreme sacrifice made by Baba Jeevan Singh (Bhai Jaita Ji) for the Sikh panth, the Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal today said that he would soon take up the matter of constructing a suitable monument of this valiant Sikh warrior at Chandni Chowk (Delhi) with the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC).
Addressing a mammoth gathering during the state level function to mark the martyrdom of Baba Jeevan Singh here today, the Chief Minister said that all out efforts would be made to construct a befitting memorial of this legendary Sikh martyr at Chandni chowk, from where he had brought the seesh of Guru Teg Bahandur to Sri Anandpur Sahib. He said that though the matter was not under the jurisdiction of the state government but they would make concerted efforts to construct this memorial, which would help in perpetuating the glorious legacy of Baba Jeevan Singh. Likewise, Mr. Badal said that the work on the construction of a prestigious memorial at Sri Anandpur Sahib would also be initiated very soon. “The groundwork of this memorial has been completed and the work on it would be started at the earliest to showcase the immense contribution of Baba Jeevan Singh towards the Sikh panth.
In a major reprieve to the people residing within the Red Line (Lal Lakeer/ Dori) in the state, the Chief Minister also announced that he had already ordered the officers of the state government to start the numbering of these properties. He said that the people living within the Lal Lakeer had to face a lot of problems because they do not have any proof regarding the ownership of this land. So keeping in view the larger public interest involved in the matter we have decided to pave a way towards their ownerships, added Mr. Badal.
Listing the pro-poor initiatives taken by the state government for the welfare of weaker sections of society, the Chief Minister said that various schemes like Atta-Dal, Shagun and Old age pensions have been started by the state government for extending a helping hand to these underprivileged sections of the society. He said that in a path breaking initiative the state government has increased the ambit of Atta-Dal scheme from 15 lakh beneficiary families to 30 lakh. Likewise, Mr. Badal said that several steps were also taken for ensuring the all-round development and prosperity of these strata of society.
Paying floral tributes to Baba Jeevan Singh, the Chief Minister said that he rendered marvelous service to the panth by bringing back the seesh of Guru Teg Bahadur, who was martyred at Chandni chowk for raising voice against injustice, tyranny and oppression. He said that Baba Jeevan Singh confronted unimaginable hardships during his journey from Delhi to Sri Anandpur sahib but he faced them bravely. “The exemplary courage exhibited by this legendary Sikh warrior hardly finds any parallel in the entire Sikh history” added Mr. Badal.
The Chief Minister said that during his lifetime Baba Jeevan Singh served two Sikh Gurus Sri Guru Teg Bahadur and Guru Gobind Singh, with utmost zeal, sincerity and commitment. He said that besides fighting valiantly in Battles from that of Bhagani to Chamkaur Sahib, Baba Jeevan Singh also gave training of warfare to elder (vadde) Sahibzaadas.
The Chief Minister further said that the SAD-BJP alliance government was committed for perpetuating the glorious history of the state for which stupendous efforts were being made by them. He said that the state government has constructed world class monuments like Viraasat-e-Khalsa Memorial at Sri Anandpur Sahib, Chapparchiri War Memorial at Mohali, Memorials of big and small holocaust at Sangrur and Gurdaspur besides the upcoming ‘Jang-e-Azaadi’ memorial at Kartarpur. Likewise, Mr. Badal said that special focus was being laid on the development of the religious towns of state.
In his address, Revenue and Information & Public Relations Minister Mr. Bikram Singh Majithia hailed the Chief Minister for organizing a state level function to mark this historic day. He said that if such events of immense historical significance were observed by the state governments, then India would soon emerge as a strong and progressive nation thereby displaying the ethos of peace, communal harmony, religious tolerance and national integration. He said that it was a matter of great pride for all of us that legendary martyrs like Baba Jeevan Singh have made unparalleled sacrifices in the Sikh history. Mr. Majithia said that even ninth Guru of Sikhs, Sri Guru Teg Bahadur sacrificed his life for preventing ‘forcible religious conversions’.
Lauding the several pro-poor initiatives taken by the Chief Minister to give reprieve to the weaker sections of society, Mr. Majithia said that these schemes were playing a pivotal role in overall development of this strata of society. He said that keeping in view that more than 32% population of the state consists of Schedule Caste populace, the union government must give a special package to the border state for ensuring their well being. Mr. Majithia said that both the centre and state government must take joint steps for the welfare of this section of society.
In his address Speaker of Punjab assembly Dr. Charanjeet Singh Atwal said that from Mr. Bhim Sen Sachar to currently Mr. Parkash Singh Badal, he had seen the working all the Chief Ministers of the state. However, he said that none of them except Mr. Badal had ever thought about the welfare of the schedule caste population of the state.
On the occasion Cabinet Minister Mr. Gulzar Singh Ranike proposed a vote of thanks to all the dignitaries.
Prominent amongst other present on the occasion included Cabinet Ministers Mr. Surjit Singh Rakhra and Mr. Sharanjeet Singh Dhillon, Chief Parliamentary Secretary Mr. Virsa Singh Valtoha, Mr. Des Raj Dhugga, Mr. Amarbeer Singh Bonny, Mr. Inderbir Singh Bolaria, Mr. Harmeet Singh Sandhu and Chaudhary Nand Lal, MLAs Mr. Sarwan Singh Phillaur, Mr. Manjeet Singh Mianwind, Mr. Baljeet Singh Jalaal Usma and Justice Nirmal Singh, former Ministers Jathedar Sewa Singh Sekhwan, Captain Balbir Singh Baath and Mr. Gobind Singh Kanjla, former MLAs Mr. Sarabjeet Singh Makkar, Mr. Parkash Singh Bhatti, Mr. Gurjant Singh Mr. Lakhbir Singh Lodhinangal and Mr. Malkiat Singh AR, senior Akali leaders Mr. Darbara Singh Guru, Mr. Rajmohinder Singh Majitha and Mr. Veer Singh Lopoke, Chairman district Planning Committee Tarn Taran Mr. Ravinder Singh Brahmpura and others.

Reiterates demand for a CBI probe

Bajwa demands Majithia’s resignation following his summoning

Chandigarh, December 21, 2014: The Punjab Congress President Mr Partap Singh Bajwa today demanded resignation of the Revenue Minister Mr Bikram Singh Majithia for having been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate to appear on December 26 in the drug smuggling racket which had rocked the state months back.

Chandigarh, December 21, 2014: The Punjab Congress President Mr Partap Singh Bajwa today demanded resignation of the Revenue Minister Mr Bikram Singh Majithia for having been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate to appear on December 26 in the drug smuggling racket which had rocked the state months back.

In a statement, Mr Bajwa reminded Mr Majithia that earlier, the then Jails Minister Mr Sarwan Singh Phillaur had resigned in the same case when the name of his son had surfaced. Now it was Mr Majithia who had been summoned and he must resign and appear before the investigators to pave the way for transparent investigation.

He alleged that Mr Majithia had to be finally summoned as there was no other way out as the ruling first family in the state was out to scuttle the investigations. It was for this reason that he had been demanding CBI inquiry which the state government had been opposing. He asserted his stand had now been vindicated that the powerful people whose names had surfaced in the multi-crore drug racket must be investigated thoroughly by an independent agency and not Punjab police.

He further said that the Enforcement Directorate has jurisdiction only with regard to violations and offences under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act whereas the allegations against Bikramjit Singh Majithia are of aiding, abetting and facilitating the multi-thousand crore drug racket for which the provisions of the NDPS Act, 1985 would squarely apply. This belated attempt to summon Bikramjit Singh Majithia by the Enforcement Directorate is an attempt to shield him from the stringent provisions under the NDPS Act. S. Bikramjit Singh Majithia ought be prosecuted under the provisions of the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985 (NDPS Act) for aiding, abetting and facilitating the drug racket in India. The SAD-BJP Government both at the Centre and the State is treating Majithia with kid gloves.

He said that as long as Bikramjit Singh Majithia continues to be a Minister no free or independent probe can be expected given the enormous political clout that he enjoys within the State apparatus as being the brother in law of the Deputy Chief Minister of Punjab and the brother of the Union Cabinet Minister.

The present probe example is a classic example of dissecting the investigation probe between the ED, Punjab Police and other agencies so that a foolproof or watertight case is not prepared against the traffickers and their patronizers enabling them to take advantage of this major lacuna under the investigation process.

S. Bajwa said that it is of utmost importance that a comprehensive probe is ordered which investigates all dimensions of the drug racket case instead of multiple agencies pulling in different directions. For eg. The ED has now summoned Bikramjit Singh Majithia whereas the consistent stand of the Punjab Police is that Bikramjit Majithia is innocent. This reflects how political pressure is scuttling a free and fair probe process.

S. Bajwa apprehended that as long as Bikramjit Singh Majithia continues to be a Minister, any probe would simply be an eye wash or a cover up exercise to protect and shield the king – pin of this muti-thousand crores drug racket case that is ruining the future of the State of Punjab. Furthermore, the Enforcement Directorate is under the administrative control of the Department of Revenue that comes under the Finance Ministry, therefore every attempt is being made to subvert the probe process and reduce a sensitive case of this nature to a cover up exercise.

The PPCC President said that it is imperative that the Union Government constitutes a Judicial inquiry headed by a sitting Judge of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India under the Commissions of Inquiry Act, 1956 to inquire into all allegations emanating from this matter given the public interest involved or refers the matter to the CBI for a through probe since this case has strong international ramifications wherein some of the accused persons are important elements of the international drug syndicate such as Satpreet Singh alias Satta, Parminder Singh Pindi, Amarinder Singh Laddi who are all Canadian nationals apart from other accused persons like Jagit Singh Chahal and Bittu Aulakh. Given this factual situation it was important that the CBI ought to have investigated this case as it is the designated nodal agency to co-ordinate with the Interpol and other foreign law enforcement agencies. Moreover serious allegations have made against the brother of a cabinet Colleague of the Prime Minister, which make it necessary, that the investigation process inspires credibility and confidence.

The issue involved is not political and nor any political motives should be attached in this case. The problem of drug menace has assumed very alarming social proportions. Now even the Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi has to take its cognisance. It was the Congress Vice-president Mr Rahul Gandhi who had first raised the issue but the Chief Minister Mr Parkash Singh Badal and the Deputy Chief Minister Mr Sukhbir Singh Badal had dubbed his statement as political. It is because of this stand taken by the Badals that Mr Majitha, who is brother-in-law of Mr Sukhbir Singh Badal, must resign”, he said.

Mr Bajwa said every village in the state had been affected by the drug menace and the supply of such large quantities of drugs was not possible without political patronage. The Badals had been blaming smuggling from across the border conveniently overlooking the fact that the drugs being consumed in the state were mainly synthetic. The drug being smuggled from across the border was mainly heroine going by the seizures made by the Border Security Force. The former cop turned drug lord who had given out Mr Majithia’s name had been arrested for the smuggling of synthetic drugs which were being produced here. He alleged that Badals were only trying to misdirect investigations by talking of smuggling from across the border.

Chandigarh, December 20, 2014 (Courtesy: HT) : The dense fog continues to create problems not only for the city residents but for cops too, thus making it difficult for them to keep a track on illegal activities during the night time
Considering low visibility and to get rid of any untoward incident, police have also revamped their strategy regarding patrolling during the night and early morning.
They have been recollecting and analysing the data of the criminal cases in which miscreants took benefits of the fog and cold weather.
A senior police officer, seeking anonymity, said police had beefed up of police control room (PCR) patrolling, as foggy days were the most challenging for police in terms of keeping a tab on miscreants.
Most markets and residential areas wear a deserted look early evening and morning time, making it easy to criminals to engage in such activities.
He added, “On December 17, some miscreants had taken benefit of the fog and broke into locks of a total of 13 shops in Manimajra and three shops in Sector 32. The close circuit television (CCTV) camera footage revealed they kept on breaking locks one by one.”
This theft incident was also the reason police have decided to revamp their strategy regarding patrolling.
Sukhchain Singh, superintendent of police (SSP), Chandigarh, said they had intensified the patrolling during the night time, especially between 11pm and 6am. “All station house officers (SHOs) have also been briefed that patrolling vehicles and cops should be deployed in all market areas to curb theft incidents.”
He also said total 59 police control room vehicles (PCRs) vehicles were patrolling from 11pm to 6am, whereas a total of 25 PCR motorcycles were keeping vigil between 5pm and 12 midnight.
A police inspector said considering the severe cold, it was really difficult to work in such conditions during the night, adding patrolling through PCR vehicles could be more effective.
Lesson to learn
On January 12, 2011, a gang of five criminals, five of them dressed in police uniform, broke into a Tanishq showroom in Manimajra during the early hours and decamped with jewellery worth Rs. 12 crore after tying the hands and legs of the security guard at the showroom. On the day of the incident, the accused had taken the benefit of the dense fog to rob the showroom.....

Amritsar, December 20, 2014: SGPC supported the signature camp held by Federation at “Akal Takhat” Sahib in support of the White House Petition Urging Obama To Raise “Sikh Issue” With Modi. SGPC extended the support to the White House petition after Akal Takhat Jathedar, Giani Gurbachan Singh while issuing “directive” to the Sikh community to sign the Petition stated that “Sikhism is a separate religion” and it should be recognized as such.
The online petition http://wh.gov/i12hT on the issue of separate status of Sikhism is filed under "We The People White House Petition" by US based “Sikhs For Justice” (SFJ). To elicit a response from Obama Administration, the petition on the issue of Article 25(b) of the Indian constitution must reach 100,000 signatures by December 31.
Claiming the Sikhism to be the world's 5th largest religion with over 30 million followers the petition states that "on January 26, 1950 Constitution of India was enforced without the consent of Sikhs who refused to sign it because Explanation II to Article 25(b) of the Constitution labels “Sikhs” as “Hindus”.
Karnail Singh Peermohammad, Federation President stated that “While RSS-BJP combine after coming into power has reignited a campaign to label Sikhs as part of Hindu Society we have taken a resolve at Akal Takhat Sahib to take the matter of Article 25 (b) at the grass root level to the Sikhs in Punjab”.
In August 2005 a Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice RC Lahoti ruled that "Sikhs and Jains are part of broader Hindu religion".
Federation President stated that this is the first time a US President will be the guest of honor on January 26th and Obama must know that Indian constitution does not recognize Sikh religion. We want President Obama to take a stand for the Sikh community which has been denied religious identity by the Indian constitution for the past 65 years.
The petition urges Obama to question PM Modi "WHY Indian constitution labels "Sikhs" as Hindus?" and raise the issues of “Sikh Genocide”; and “Sikhs’ Right to Self-determination”. Barack Obama will be the 1st American President to attend India's Republic Day function as Chief Guest on January 26, 2015.
Federation President stated that “Signature camps in support of the petition will also be held at Fatehgarh sahib on December 26, 27 and 28 and will continue campaign in Punjab to get the required 100,000 signatures”.....

Ferozepur, December 20: A border town - Ferozepur came into existence in 14th century has given birth to 4 new districts – Moga, Faridkot, Fazilka and Muktsar. There was a time when Ferozepur used to be known as one of the biggest district of Punjab but now it falls in the category of backward and small districts being ignored by the governments.

Ferozepur is now only of the name of Ferozepur. Still the buildings with beautifully architect view of British time are seen in this city at certain places. The city of 12 Gates, - Delhi, Mori, Bagdadi, Zira, Makhu, Kasuri, Amritsari, Multani - said to be a walled city, is now gateless except with the existence of one Bagdadi Gate.

Out of five Cinemas – Shimla, Raja, Amar, Joshi and Memorial – except one Amar Talkies with old furniture, no maintenance – all have closed down. In this cinema, too the picture is shown with dim-light putting a strain on eyes and most of the films are displayed with A Certificates. Hardly any hi-fi or gentry is seen the hall and sometime only 4-5 persons. Most of the time, movie-lovers have to go to the adjoining districts like Moga, Faridkot where PVRs are available. The work on multiplex PVR is also held up.

From business point of view, this city is quite backward. The old businessmen are running well but none dares to invest in new establishment. The interesting point is that most of the people have shifted their business to other cities after 1984.

Traffic on roads have increased and to control it, the district administration has tried by installing the traffic lights at the busy crossings but it will take time to used to the new system.

With the coming up of District Administrative Complex, the space available with the demolition of old buildings has been ear-marked temporarily for ‘Parking’ to control the rush of vehicles in the interiors of the city with narrow bazaars. This will also facilitate the mobility of fire brigade in the event of any fire mishap.
Despite the city having no big shopping mall or hotel or restaurant, the land prices is sky rocketing.

With the demarcation of new municipal wards, the city is dividing in 25 wards now but people are still deprived of basic amenities with major one of drinking water and sewerage.

So far as health services are concerned, more than 60 per cent posts of doctors are lying vacant in civil hospital and its dispensaries. Recently, the PGI Satellite Centre sanctioned for the city, looks to be dream for the citizens because of non-coordination between Centre and State relations. People are dependent on private hospitals in case of emergency or have to rush to Ludhiana, Amritsar or Chandigarh.

Economically weak Municipal Council
The plight of Municipal Council is like “less income, high expenses” and is in debt of Rs.14 crore which includes Rs.3.25 cr Provident Fund of employees, Rs.2.31 cr pension payable to retired employees, Rs.4.75 cr electricity bills and Rs.70 lakh payable to the contractors. Because of poor condition of the Council, none of the official is willing to be posted its head. Not only this, because of interference of Municipal Council and local leaders, Rs.1.20 cr could be recovered since long.

Plight of living in Cantonment area:
During the last Assembly elections, Parkash Singh Badal Chief Minister had announced the abolition of octroi but it is still to get official nod. There is registry of property in cantonment. Earlier it used to be for only dumped material which too has been stopped.

Pitiable condition of Govt.& Govt. Aided Schools: About 60 per cent posts of teachers are lying vacant in these schools. Because of wrong policy of government for banning the recruitment against the retirement of aided school teacher, a century old school - Hindu Girls School - in the city is almost at the verge of closure. Similarly will be the position of another school – Sikh Kanya Mahavidayala. Even the condition of MLM Sr. Sec. School where Parkash Singh Badal got childhood education is not so good. The grant to the aided schools is not regular. In the Govt. ITI for Girls, number of important posts are lying vacant.
For the last three years, the bridge which will connect Majha and Malwa has not been completed over Satluj Bridge from village Bandala to Kot Budha (Tarn Taran).The approximate construction cost is Rs.46.20 lac and it will take another one year. But it will prove a milestone in the history as it will reduce the distance between Ferozepur-Amritsar of about 40 minutes.
Ferozepur has not developed from tourist point of view. The only place to be visited is Indo-Pak border retreat ceremony but the places like Hussaniwala Shaheedi Samark, Saragarhi Gurudawara, Fatehgarh Sabhwaran, Mudki, Ferozeshah Memorial and secret hiding place of Bhagat Singh and his associates are still to have the attention of the government for their development. Old ancient memorials are being ignored by the government while new projects are given preferences to gain political wah wah.
The farmers near the zero line are yet to enjoy the benefits of the schemes to be given a practical shape. Hardly, you will find graduate pass boy or girl, in the border towns. No bank facilities in the remote areas, no animal husbandry hospitals in the villages and farmers cultivating land beyond the barbered wire hardly get any compensation and working time is also given as six hours. During 2004, a scheme to make the farmers owner of the land was also withdrawn and most of the families are doing the business of extraction of illicit liquor.
Details:
Population as per census in 2011 1,10191
Male 58,395
Female 51690
Civil Hospital One
Animals hospital One

Payal/Chandigarh, December 20, 2014: The Punjab Congress President Partap Singh Bajwa has opposed to move of the Parkash Singh Badal government to put additional burden on the people by imposing professional tax to mop up about Rs. 700 crore.

In a statement, Bajwa said rather than cutting down on profligacy and streamlining governance, the people were being made to pay the cost of the luxurious life style of the rulers, increasing corruption and non-governance.

He said the proposal was to impose this tax on the people earning minimum of Rs 5 lakh and above per annum with the lowest tax slab being Rs. 2000. He made it clear this was not acceptable as the incidence of taxation, both direct and indirect, on the people was already high and this tax would prove to be yet another burden.

He asserted this was yet another indication that the Narendra Modi government which happened to be the “own” government of Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal had refused to provide any bailout package which was badly needed in view of the deepening crisis. There was no denying the fact that resource mobilisation was necessary to undertake development works but then the problem here was inefficiency and corruption at every level. The state was paying heavy interest on the mounting debt which had crossed Rs one lakh crore. The situation had deteriorated to such an extent that the government lacked funds to pay salaries to the staff. He also referred to the non-payment of salaries for the last several months to the teachers of the government aided private colleges in the absence of release of grant to these colleges.

He called upon the government with withdraw this move or be prepared to face the ire of the people. He said in case the Badal government could not improve the life of the people, it should not at least put extra burden on them.

He was accompanied by S. Sadhu Singh Dharamsot MLA, S. Amrik Singh Dhillon MLA, S. Gurkirat Singh Kotli MLA, S. Tej Parkash Singh Ex MLA, S. Lakhvir Singh Lakha President DCC Khanna.....
